About this product
- DescriptionOperation Iraqi Freedom began on 20 March 2003 and has become perhaps one of the most controversial conflicts of modern warfare. Thousands of US Marines were deployed into Iraq, and their aim was to topple the dictatorship government and liberate the Iraqi people. This book examines the US marines who were involved in one of the major battles of this operation, the battle for An Nasiriyah, covering everything from enlistment and to their hard-won victory. It also covers their amphibious tractors AMTRACs with Mk-19 grenade launchers and their preparations for potential chemical warfare.
